Review: Journey for Elysium (PC VR)

A short trip to the afterlife.

For the past several months now, we have offered up glimpses of the story-driven VR adventure title Journey for Elysium. We saw a game that had a unique visual style, the promise of a story that would take us all to an afterlife, a world filled with architecture inspired by Greek mythology, and mind-bending puzzles to solve. The unique visual style was certainly eye catching, but I often wondered if the rest of the game would be able to hold up to this aesthetically pleasing presentation.

With the release of Journey...
 

Desert Bus for Hope 2019 Charity Event Underway

Better late than never.

We're just a few days late in sharing this news with you, but when it comes to charity: Better late than never, right?

The latest annual charity drive (get it?) that is Desert Bus for Hope is well underway. A group of people have already spent three days driving across the desert, in real time, in an effort to raise money for charity. In three days and 6 hours, the crew has already raised over $388,400 for the Child's Play charity. The team is still going strong after all this time.

For those that don't know,...
 

Google Stadia Launch Games are Lacking

Stadia comes out of the gate already limping.

With the soft launch of Google Stadia rapidly approaching, it seems like we're beyond due for a look at the platform's launch lineup. Hell, we're probably beyond due for a look at the Stadia UI and full featureset, but that is another matter entirely.

Today, Google revealed a list of 12 games that will serve as the launch titles for when Stadia has a soft launch on November 19. For $130, you were able to get in on the ground floor of the launch of Stadia with the Founder's Edition. These kits have...
 

EA Working on Cross-Save and Progression Sharing Between Steam and Origin

Seems EA is serious about this return to Steam.

With the recent announcement that EA was making a return to Steam, a number of questions remained unanswered. A couple of those questions focused on whether or not there would be support for things like cross-save or even cross-progression between EA's own Origin platform and Steam.

Fortunately, we have a few promising answers today. Most developers don't like to split their communities and EA is no exception. It seems they are working to get Origin to work similar to how Ubisoft's Uplay works with...
 

Diablo 4 is Always Online and Includes Microtransactions

This is the Diablo you pictured, right?

Yesterday, Blizzard took time away from appeasing China to kick off their two day BlizzCon event for 2019. One of yesterday's big reveals was the announcement that Diablo 4 is coming. What they didn't share in their reveal announcement to the public is the fact that Diablo 4 will require an online connection.

Not only that, but Diablo 4 will include microtransactions. Of course, all of this has a chance to change over the course of development, but I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you. Speaking of development,...

  • First of Three New Videos Released for Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey

    First of Three New Videos Released for Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey


    Panache Digital Games and Private Division have released the first video in a new three-video series for Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey. We actually briefly talked about this game back when it was revealed to have a 2019 release date, which has some more general information about the game itself. As before, the game is looking to arrive this year on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

    The short of it is that the game tasks you with trying to survive, thus ensuring the future of your species through evolution and good decision making. It is an open-world survival game at heart, but instead of just your own survival at stake, it's the fate of all humanity. Hey, no pressure or anything, right? ...

  • QC Games and Breach Shutting Down Just Three Months After Release

    QC Games and Breach Shutting Down Just Three Months After Release


    QC Games, the development studio that released Breach just this past January into Steam Early Access, is now shutting down. The announcement came earlier today via a developer update on the Breach website.

    Breach was a 4v1 action-RPG. Players could make and customize their own characters with a variety of customizable abilities. These characters would face off against a "Veil Demon" that was either controlled by the AI or by other players. The game was going to transition to being free-to-play once it left Early Access, but it looks like...

  • Real Money 'Battlefield Currency' Finally Announced for Battlefield V; New Patch Arrives April 4


    Two things were revealed by DICE and EA today for Battlefield V. First is the changelog for the soon to be released Battlefield V update. This is the second update for Chapter 3: Trial by Fire and, as you expect, includes a lot of changes for the Firestorm battle royale mode. Do note that the link I provided here to the update changelog is to a PDF.

    With that out of the way, it's now time to talk about "Battlefield Currency." The community has already started to call them "Boins," so don't be surprised if you see that pop up more...

    We've already covered the game quite a bit over the past couple of years. You should totally check out that coverage if you want a ton of details, screenshots,...

  • Borderlands 3 Dated for September 13, 2019 - Confirmed Six Month Exclusive to Epic Games Store


    Borderlands 3 will officially be released on September 13, 2019 on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Epic Games Store for PC. In case you missed the obvious "hints" dropped earlier this week, or were in denial as I repeatedly saw from people on other sites, the PC release is indeed a six month timed exclusive on the Epic Game Store before it will hit other PC storefronts like Steam.

    However, the point of this isn't to talk about how completely bullshit exclusives are, especially when it comes to the PC market, but we are instead here to...

  • Vertigo Sucks a Little Less After Today's CS:GO Update

    Vertigo Sucks a Little Less After Today's CS:GO Update

    Valve just rolled out a fresh update for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive this evening that makes some adjustments to three maps. These maps are none other than Vertigo, Nuke, and Abbey. The biggest changes tonight hit Vertigo and Abbey, with Nuke receiving only little bitty fix.

    As always, the update will be automatically applied via Steam....

  • Refunds Now Allowed on PlayStation Store Pre-orders but There is a Catch

    Refunds Now Allowed on PlayStation Store Pre-orders but There is a Catch


    For the longest time, if you wanted a refund from Sony for a purchase made through the PlayStation Store, you were either completely out of luck or were maybe given a one time exception. There were a few other times where Sony cracked open that refund door another inch, such as when games were severely broken to the point of crashing systems, but these were made once in a blue moon. Even then it wasn't a guarantee that you would be issued a refund if you requested one.

    Yesterday, Sony pushed out a slightly less draconian refund policy for purchases...

    Sword Art Online Alicization Lycoris Announced for PS4, XB1, and Steam

    Bandai Namco announced this week that Sword Art Online Alicization Lycoris is coming to the Americas for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam. You play as Kirito as they battle through the "Underworld," which is a "mysterious virtual world set in the anime series' Alicization arc."

    There's a whole lot here I'm not familiar with. I'm just going to let the rest of the press release announcement for the game speak for itself. Plus, check ou t the new announcement trailer and screenshots. ...

  • Doom is the Theme for QuakeCon 2019

    Doom is the Theme for QuakeCon 2019


    If you were to say that Quakecon 2019 is Doomed, you would be correct. Not only because that's the on point headline that Bethesda used in today's press release, but also because Quakecon 2019 is focusing on Doom! It's not even being called QuakeCon 2019, but is instead being called QuakeCon: Year of DOOM!

    DOOM! DOOOOOOOOOOOM!

    Even with all this Doom, there's not a whole lot of gloom to be seen, unless you aren't able to get the registrations you wanted for the event. To ensure that doesn't happen, you'll want to visit the revamped Quakecon...

  • Now Deleted Borderlands 3 Tweets Suggest September 13 Release on Epic Store (Updated)


    Earlier today, the official Borderlands 3 Twitter account put up some now deleted tweets. Normally this wouldn't be a "thing" to care about, but these particular tweets included some previously unknown information about the release of Borderlands 3.

    Among the information revealed is the potential release date for the game. The date looks to be September 13, 2019. In addition, it seems as though pre-orders for the game will get access to the Gold Weapon Skins Pack, a similar pre-order bonus to the one offered with the release of Borderlands...
